The Go-Cross is a concept vehicle which Datsun had unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The Go-Cross is crossover vehicle with a raised body providing more ground clearance giving it a muscular stance. The Go-Cross concept has been built on the same seven-seater platform of the Go+ which is currently sold in India.
The Datsun Go-Cross strongly follows the current design language which can be seen in the current generation of vehicles the company offers. The large hexagonal grille at the front is surrounded by a thick chrome bezel accompanied by the wrap around headlamps. The fog lamps are located at a higher position which gives the Go-Cross a beefy appeal. The front bumper has a skid plate in the bottom centre which compliments the aggressive look of the concept. The crossover is also equipped with roof-rails, additional body panelling, large alloy wheels, and gets a roof mounted spoiler on the tailgate completing its stylish look. The interiors of the Go-Cross concept have not yet been disclosed by the manufacturer.
Under the hood, the Go-Cross is expected to be powered by a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine that would be capable of producing around 68PS of power at 5,000 rpm and 104Nm of torque at 4,000rpm mated to a 5-speed manual transmission which is currently used in the Go+. The production version of the Go-Cross concept is likely to be offered with a diesel variant as well.
After its debut a few months ago in Tokyo, the Datsun Go-Cross concept has made its Indian debut at the 2016 Indian Auto Expo. The Go Cross Concept will be a preview of the Go Cross production car that will be launched soon.
Based on the Go+, Datsun will be showcasing the Go-Cross concept at the 2016 Auto Expo in February
